Pension Clicks
March 2022
In this edition of Pension Clicks, we look at the proposed details of the Pensions Dashboard, release the findings of Better Outcomes by Design, our new DC and Financial Wellbeing Survey, and share the latest Risk Settlement news in our Q1 Bulletin.
On The Horizon
To help with planning, our On the Horizon summary provides a reminder of some of the key legislative and regulatory developments expected over the coming year.
Dashboard Details Proposed
From staging dates commencing in April 2023, schemes are expected to face a large number of ‘find requests’ and, where the details match one of their members, schemes will typically be required to provide data about that member’s benefits immediately. 
Better Outcomes by Design
The 2022 DC Pension Scheme and Financial Wellbeing Survey shares survey findings alongside insights from Aon’s subject matter experts. Each chapter finishes with a short checklist of practical actions schemes can take to deliver better outcomes for members and sponsors. 
Q1 Risk Settlement Bulletin
An update on the latest mortality analysis, the importance of ESG in the risk settlement market, and a look ahead at market pricing and capacity in 2022.
Factoring ESG Into Risk Settlement Decision Making
ESG is an essential consideration for all schemes completing an insurer transaction. To address this, we have developed an ESG rating system for insurance providers, designed to assess whether and how well they integrate ESG considerations into their investment decision-making process. 
Putting Members At The Core Of Risk Management 
Kelly Hurren and Tom Yorath discuss the results of Aon’s latest global pension risk survey, including attitudes to member options and GMP equalisation. First published in Professional Pensions.
Long Term Asset Fund 
The FCA has finalised rules for the Long Term Asset Fund (LTAF), designed to invest efficiently in long-term, illiquid assets. In this short paper, Waleed Gill, Chris Inman and Joanna Sharples explore the changes to the finalised rules and consider if this is a game-changer for DC scheme investment.

Aon Success at Pensions Age Awards

Aon in the press
This month, we examine the divestment dilemma facing UK pension schemes. We find that while UK employers feel more responsibility for employee health and wellbeing, strategic actions aren’t aligning with this. And UK employers are seeing significant changes in what their employees expect at work.
